ProTrain has made a huge difference in our lives! After getting our third English Mastiff, we knew we needed help. Chunk is by no means your typical Mastiff. He is an extremely large, high energy, stubborn bulldozer of a pup. But because of the OBS, Beginner Dog Program, Chunk has become a pleasure. Weighing in at almost 220 pounds and with almost two years left of growing and filling out, I can honestly say that I’m not afraid to walk him or take him anywhere -- even if he does weigh over 80 pounds more than I do! He walks like a champ on a leash, and he doesn’t pull or let distractions bother him. He sits, lies down, and remains there! After he came back from ProTrain, it was like having a different dog -- one that would actually listen and could be taken anywhere. And we have! For example, Chunk was chosen to represent “The Beast” at the screening of The Sandlot at AutoZone Park in June 2013. Before the movie, everyone who wanted to, was able to have their photo taken with Chunk as they came into the stadium. With Charlie’s help, Chunk was the perfect gentleman. He sat for close to 100 photos with adults and children of all ages, who were hugging, holding, and petting him. Without the training ProTrain provided, that occasion would not have been possible. We are stopped constantly when we go out with Chunk. People always ask, “How did you train him?” And they always say, “He is so well behaved!” We are happy to give them ProTrain’s contact information every time, and will continue to do so every chance we get!
ProTrain has also changed the life of one of our other Mastiffs, Mr. Tank. His extreme fear of
everything -- and I mean everything -- from a leaf falling off a tree to his own shadow, made it
impossible for us to have guests over or go anywhere near him without him urinating out of
fear. When Bryan and Kira came to our house to assess him, Tank would not make eye contact
with them and urinated all over himself within minutes. Bryan suggested a pharmacotherapy
program and contacted our veterinarian himself to recommend the medication he believed
would help. With Bryan’s deep understanding of dogs and years of experience, we trusted his
recommendations. Tank has been on his pharmacotherapy program for a while now, and the
differences we see in him, though perhaps small to others, are incredible to us. Tank smiles! He
can go outside without anxiety and has not urinated out of fear since the beginning of
treatment. Tank can sit on the couch while guests are over and even lets some of them pet him!
Our Tank is almost seven and has lived every day in fear. Bryan and Kira have changed his life
forever! And for that, we cannot thank them enough. Their knowledge, ability, and love for
dogs exceeds anything we have ever seen, and we will always spread the word to everyone
With all of our hearts, thank you!
